Alcohol yes, cocaine no.
A first test proved that he hadn`t taken any drugs except of 0.64 promille of alcohol.
The amounts of alcohol authorised for driving in France are 0,25g/L of blood or 0,50g/L of air (measured through a blood check or a breath check, 99% are breath checks).

As for speed, more than 50 km/h above the allowed speed gets your licence cancelled and huge fines. Not sure about jail though. Even more unsure of how it applies to foreigners, and even more to non-EU citizens.

What I'm wondering is... given the character that Vino is, how would one party with him ?

Eurosport.FR immediately says that`s not true. And first police tests with his spittle did not show any cocaine usage. Just a German source here at the moment.

Iglinskiy negative for drugs, plans to sue for defamation

http://www.cyclin...defamation

Astana rider apologises for drunk driving and speeding incident

Valentin Iglinskiy was not under the influence of drugs when he was caught for speeding and drunk driving in France earlier this week. The Astana rider also said that he had not spent the evening with teammate Alexandre Vinokourov, as some media had reported, and that he would take legal action against those who claimed that he, and by inference, Vinokourov, had been using cocaine.

A blood test conducted by the National Gendarmerie “revealed a negative result for any form of drugs,” Astana said in a press release Friday afternoon.

The Kazakh rider appeared before the High Court in Nice Thursday, and answered questions under oath through an interpreter. He said that he had dined alone in Nice, and denied having told police that he had spent the evening with the team's future manager Vinokourov.

"I never said that, I don’t master the language enough to explain all this. I just made it clear to a policeman that Vinokourov was a friend whom I saw regularly. I never said that I was with him as several newspapers and websites wrote.”

When the story of the incident first appeared, it was reported that Iglinskiy had also consumed cocaine. “I am very angry to read all this, because it implies that I left my friend after having consumed alcohol and cocaine. All that is very damaging on a professional level and I risk losing my job because of this rumour.”

Iglinskiy said that he would take legal action agains those who perpetuate the allegation. “I intend to bring this matter to court for defamation on my friend Vinokourov and me. This misinformation has circulated in the media and has had devastating effects.

“I am a professional cyclist of the Astana team, and now it says that Vinokourov and me, we have a life of depravity. I want to say that we are healthy people. Now, our friends and our families suspect us not to be serious and have a life of debauchery.”

In its press release, the team indicated that he would sue the police. “The false accusations by the state of testing positive for any drugs, regarding Valentin Iglinskiy will be brought to justice so that the perpetrators can be held accountable.”

In addition, Iglinskiy, 27 years old, publicly apologized for the incident, which he “deeply regrets.”

I guess Omega Pharma will be the new sponsor of Highroad. They left Lotto because they want sponsor more international team and Highroad would be good option for them, I think. Smile

The question would be if they would give to Aldag enough money to save the team in the ProTour..

I see some C*nts (I think this word is suitable here) knocked over the memorial to Weylandt et al in Ghent. What a thing to do. How utterly senseless!

And yet another big name for the Vuelta.
Andreas Klöden will lead the RadioShack team there.

So obviously all the crashed TdF top 10 contenders will give it a shot in Spain now.
Will be interesting if Brajkovic will also ride it.

Not really, half of the TDF crashed-out or injured riders don't evne start the Vuelta.

Horner - Crashed out -> prefers Colorado/Canadian races
Leipheimer - Injured -> prefers Colorado/Canadian races
Vinokourov - Crashed out -> ended his career
Gesink - Injured -> prefers Colorado/Canadian races

Already 4 TDF top 10 contenders who either crashed out or at least got injured and won't start vuelta

Does anyone know the other big names for the Vuelta? I know Mosquera is planning to ride but for example are Anton, Nibali or Rodriguez going to race it again?

Hmm sounds like a pretty good line-up Shock

I bet the Vuelta organisers will be praying for more crashes in the Tdf next year...

Edit: Not a massive surprise but Sastre has confirmed he'll be there too: http://www.velona...oving.aspx

And Wiggins is apparently only there to tune up for the Worlds, which in my humble opinion is a very very wrong decision

3rd section down kind of sounds like he might be going for the GC, but it wouldn't surprise me if he does what he did in the Giro last year, ride for 2 weeks and then just stop.
